Guest Reviews


    • “Hawkrigg Cottage is excellent”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We stayed at Hawkrigg for a short business trip. Everything went like clockwork from start to finish. Directions were good and key collection easy peasy on arrival. The location is delightful and the views from the living room are breath-taking. Emma popped in to check if everything was ok when we got there and was on hand if we needed anything. She was extremely friendly and helpful and even left us a bottle of wine and some (very indulgent!) cake! We would definitely recommend Hawkrigg. It is clean, new and beautifully decorated. As the twin room upstairs is under a gable it would probably be more suited to children, however my sister slept in the upstairs room and managed just fine.”

    • “Fantastic place”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We stayed here the first week in January for 1 week. It really is the most fantastic place. The cottage was immaculate and spacious and the views were amazing. Emma and family were so helpful and friendly made us feel very welcome and even left us a cake. We stayed in the cottage for most of the week as we just wanted to chill out and this was a perfect setting to relax . We did visit Kirkby Lonsdale which was a lovely little place and just a short drive from the cottage. We would definitely come back again.”

    • “A home away from home.”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Upon finding Hawkrigg Cottage, which was made simple by great directions, we unpacked our bags and pretty much immediately felt at home. The cottage itself is finished to a very high standard, was immaculate and to top it off there was a homemade cake in the kitchen for us that was fantastic and a bottle of wine in the fridge. 1st impressions count; the cottage made a good start and didn't falter throughout our whole stay. Ideally situated between the Lakes and the Dales, it was great for day trips to either and it was always a pleasure to return to the cottage, cook dinner and have a night in front of the TV. If you have a desire to eat out, the village of Kirkby Lonsdale is a few minutes drive down the road and has a number of good places to eat. We genuinely couldn't have been more pleased with the cottage and would go back tomorrow if we could. If you're looking for a cottage to base yourself then I recommend Hawkrigg Cottage, it's everything you need and a ridiculous bargain.”

    • “Beautiful location looking out over the Lune Valley with it's dramatic sky. Situated on a working farm but not intrusive to holiday makers. Hawkrigg Cottage had everything we required - and more - and was spotlessly clean and tidy. Perfectly situated for the Lakes and Yorkshire by car. Would definitely return.”

About the location


Kendal 9 miles.

An attractive market town, Kirkby Lonsdale is situated in the heart of the Lune Valley, midway between the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District. The town was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, and holds a 13th century Market Charter. Nowadays, Thursday is market day, a perfect opportunity for visitors to explore the variety of distinctive shops in the town, or the many 17th and 18th century buildings which still stand. This part of the Lune Valley was a favourite haunt of the artist Turner, and was made famous by Ruskin – his "view" of the valley is still spectacular. The medieval Devil’s Bridge spans the river, and the quiet country lanes are ideal for exploring by car, bike, or even horse. There are three golf courses nearby, as well as tennis, riding, fishing and a variety of riverside and country walks, making the area an ideal location for a break, whatever time of year.
